Hmm, site-packages should already be on your path, although I note that
the PyQT How-To for Wing says to add Lib/site-packages to your path.
See "Test Driving the Source Browser" in:


One possible problems is confusion about which Python installation is
being used (if you have more than one).  

However, I'm wondering if pyqt has changed since the above was written.
It may now modify or add to path internally (fixable by setting Python
Path in Wing) or is written in a dynamic way so that the completion
information just isn't there (not so fixable, except possibly by using
src/wingutils/generate_pi.py in your Wing installation to generate
interface files by scraping the modules at runtime).

It's been a while since I used PyQT.  Anyone else here have recent
experience w/ it and Wing?
